Canada’s CTV News is reporting that four Ontario nursing home workers have been suspended with pay after being filmed abusing a resident. 85 year old Hellen MacDonald’s son became suspicious when he saw that his mother had an unexplainable black eye and placed a hidden camera in her room.
The footage shows staff members shoving feces in MacDonald’s face, blowing their noses on her bed sheets, and changing her diaper with the room’s door wide open. A link to the CTV story and footage can be found at the link below:
Please be aware that the footage may be shocking.
